Title Poem 

"I shot an arrow into the air, 
It fell to earth, I knew not where; 
For so swiftly it flew, the sight 
Could not follow it in its flight. 

I breathed a song into the air, 
It fell to earth, I knew not where ; 
For who has sight so keen and strong 
That it can follow the flight of song? 

Long, long afterwards, in an oak, 
I found the arrow, still unbroke ; 
And the song, from beginning to end, 
I found again in the heart of a friend."

IKE the shepherds of old, and the wise men, 
We follow the gleam of a star. 
Swift as the ra)'s of the morning 
The beams shine out from afar. 
A message of truth and of wisdom, 
A thought cradled long in our hearts, 

Into the night of our dreaming 

The flash of an Arrow darts. 

Long had our dreams been troubled 
By longings, vague, unclear, 
Long had we hoped and struggled 
But the path was dark and drear. 
As a gazer in a crystal 
We had seen our world go by 
With naught to keep in our memory 
The passing pageantry. 

Our halls are old with story 
Of noble deeds and bright, 
There's no blot on seal or charter 
'Tis a record shining white. 
But these deeds are flickering shadows, 
Like the firelight on the wall. 
Should we say to the myriads after — 
You too are shadows, all ? 

But love in her infinite wisdom 
Will always point the way ; 
The darkness passed in a moment — 
We saw the dawn of the day. 
There's no shadow now in the crystal ; 
The gazer writes with a smile. 
Secure in the thought that the shadows 
Shall be real in the after-while. 

The realms of truth and wisdom 
Are limitless everj'where, 
And an arrow now carries our message, 
Wings its happy way thru the air 
A fire-tipped, golden-winged arrow 
Carries the song of our hearts — 
May it bring to \ou joy and beauty 
As into your life it darts.

when she was elected President of our Se-

ly and abides by them at all times. Dur- 
ing her sojourn in college she has made a 
splendid record in all her work. To say 
that appearances are deceiving does not be- 
gin to express it! The majority of girls 
at W. C. believe Elizabeth to be a saint. 
Only her most intimate friends know her 
as she really is, and they know her to be 
anything but a saint. Perhaps she is a little dignified, but she 
is a jolly good companion. To tell the truth, a "good old Pal" 
for her.

"Those about her, from her shall read the per- 
fect ivays of honor." 

Pearl came to us from "sunny Tennes- 
see," in the fall of '17. Before many 
months had passed we recognized in Pearl 
the qualities of a good, all-round college 
girl. Notwithstanding the fact that she has 
excelled in her studies, she has not special- 
ized in class-room work alone, for her work 
in society has been equally good. Then, 
too, we can't forget the fact that when a 
soiree is given, we find Pearl there, and in 
her Senior year the class was surprised to 
find her a member of the class basketball 
team, reminding us again of the fact though 
slow. Pearl is sure. By her loyalty and 
"stickability," Pearl has won the admira- 
tion of both students of both students and faculty, and we each wish well for this 
representative of Tennessee.

"To remain in nature alnvays siueet and simple 
and humble, and therefore strong." 

We now introduce you to Wilmot, the 
dignified member of the class of 1920. But 
she is not always quite so dignified as she 
looks, for even Wilmot indulges in such 
frivolities as going up street on Friday aft- 
ernoon just to buy chocolates, and gives 
much time and thought to her favorite col- 
or.^, "Garnet" and White. However, Wil- 
mot is known best for her thorough, con- 
scientious, able work in the class room, 
literary society and Y. W. C. A. She has 
given much time to the study of expression, 
and the beautiful stories she tells, in a man- 
ner her very own, are always in demand. 
To see her is to note her simplicity, and to 
is to feel her sincerity. Truly Wilmot's simplicity and quiet strength of 
will be long remembered by those of us who have known her best at D. W.

"Oh she stands high in all the people's hearts." 

Ruth is a girl recognized through the 
whole college as a big-hearted Christian 
character, radiating good cheer and moral 
soundness. So far as any one knows she 
has not missed "Morning Watch" during 
her four years here as a student. The 
stand that she has taken in Y. W. C. A., in 
her class, in Society, on the Annual Staff, 
and in all phases of college activities, tes- 
tifies that she is a prodigious worker. Fresh- 
men look upon her as an old friend and 
come to her with their troubles. Ruth 
never spends her time in idleness on the 
campus for she is always too busy for that. 
Her friendliness with everyone has reaped 
an abundant harvest and we dare say there isn't a girl in school who has as many

"One ixilio never turned his back, but marched 
breast forivard. 
Never doubted clouds ivould break, 
Never dreamed, though right luere ivorsted, 
JVrong ivould triumph." 

Lila is truly a leader. Her ability, en- 
enthusiasm, determination and strong faith 
in God and man peculiarly fit her for this. 
For the Y. W. C. A. she has labored un- 
tiringly. For Castalia also she has been a 
loyal worker, and here as early as her 
Freshman year, she proved by winning the 
public debate, her skill and joy in argu- 
ment. None of us has ever had a chance 
since then to doubt it. On the basketball 
field she fights for the game with the same 
determination. In spite of her many other 
interests she has not slighted her literarj 
work, and has also given much time to the 
study of art. Lila is to be a Medical Mis- 

and with her strength of mind and character we know that she has much to 

this work.

"// is not art but Heart ivhich ivins the wide

The joyous, the sad, the homesick, the 
troubled, all come to Rose for sympathy 
and encouragement. In the Y. W. C. A., 
at the Soiree, in Society, in class room, on 
the basket-ball field, her enthusiasm never 
wanes. The light from her left hand some- 
times causes her to wander into dreamland, 
but soon she is brought to earth again by 
the approach of a Freshman, or the call of 
a teacher. Rose is a good student, but she 
can not understand why any nice woman 
would care to teach Chemistry. In spite 
of this fact she is a true friend, a loyal 
member of her class, and an all-round col- 
lege girl.

Mrs. S. C. Cathcart a beautiful ray of 
sunshine. "Lib" got "her start" from the 
schools of her native city, from which she 
entered this Christian Institution four years 
ago. Elizabeth is one of Amelia's loyal and 
active members, also one of her most pop- 
ular musicians. Her ability to sing and 
play has delighted many audiences. She 
has a very fertile mind which is the source 
of many thoughts full of sense and wit. Be- 
cause of her lovable disposition and many 
winning ways, she has made a host of 
friends. Although she can see no harm in 

wickets, and sometimes "beats," we can't help predicting for her a great future, filled 

with success, which we feel sure "Lib" will naturally have.

"There is no place like home." 

Margaret is not a very loquacious mem- 
ber of our class, but if you observe her rec- 
ord you will find that she ponders more 
deeply than she speaks. Her class records 
are ones to be proud of, especially those in 
the languages. But invariably first in Mar- 
garet's mind are thoughts of home. She is 
a five-day student and no college attraction, 
not even a soiree, has ever been great 
enough to induce her to spend a week-end 
with us. Making wickets is no favorite 
pastime with Margaret, as she is always 
engaged in acquainting herself with the 
Old Masters. Her splendid work in col- 
lege foreshadows even greater success for 
her in the literary world.

The college is indebted to the town of

how accomplished she is, musically or oth-

charms. But what's the use? Those of

ago, and those who have not met her have 
missed so much I can never tell the half of 
it. We are glad to have such a girl as 
Grace in our class.

"Thy soul ivas like a star and divelt apart." 

When you first meet Laura, the charac- 
teristics that impress you are her womanli- 
ness, courage, frankness and artistic sensi- 
tiveness that shine in her face and large 
bright eyes. She is one of the tenderest of 
girls, but her Scotch reticence keeps her 
from laying bare her heart in talk. Never- 
theless at times her patriotic love for her 
native hills makes her speak of Tennessee 
with the chivalric enthusiasm of a mediaev- 
al knight for his lady. In addition to her 
solidity of character, Laura has one of the 
keenest and most logical minds of the class.

"What ever the lueather may be," says he, 
"IV hat ever the iveather may be. 
It's the songs ye sing, an' the smiles ye ivear 
That's a-makin' the sun shine everywhere." 

Mary Belle, best known as "Dot," has 

sung her way straight into the hearts of us 
all. It's not just her voice, it's the smile 
she gives, it's the willingness she expresses, 
its the joy she gets from it, that makes us 
call on her so often. It's her trueness that 
makes us want her as a friend. It's her 
knack of always being at the right place — 
whether it's class room, morning watch or 
committee meeting — at the right time that 
makes her a valuable member of the class 
of 1920. And it's her enthusiasm, her 
promptness, her smiles and her songs that 
are sure to make success for her in the 
world outside of D. W. W. C.

rest of us entered the Freshman class of

has made good in her work, and we pre- 
dict for her a happy, successful future.,

"A heart to resolve, a head to contrive, 
And a hand to execute." 

Can one believe that the girl who per- 
forms every task with dignity and selfpos- 
session of a veteran, and who is as depend- 
able as the "Rock of Gibraltar," is the 
"Baby" of the class of 1920? Although 
quiet and unassuming in manner, we can 
always be sure of Laura Jane's interest and 
helpfulness in the class room, as a loyal 
daughter of Amelia, in Y. W. C. A. and 
in every line of college work. Her happy 
smile and ever ready jollity are antidotes 
for many a troubled temper.

"Common sense is instinct, and enough of it

Sarah is a true type of an all-round col- 
lege girl. During her four years in col- 
lege, she has excelled in all forms of ath- 
letics, has taken an active interest in her 
society, in Y. W. C. A., and in all of the 
social activities of the college. Yet she 
has not let these things interfere with her 
work. While never a "grind," yet her 
name is always found near the head of the 
list in all of her classes. The number of 
offices that she has held and the number- 
less friends that she has made all testify 
to her popularity in the college ciicle. Jolly 
and carefree, loyal and true, lovely and 
lovable, is our "Pat."

"Potts' zeal and energy ivas shoivn 
Throughout her college career, 
And another lue've not knoivn 
Of more luit or less fear." 

We remember the fall of 1918 for many 
interesting things, but for one thing es- 
pecially. We note that Georgia made a 
contribution to S. C. by sending one of her 
best girls to D. W. W C. At that time 
we knew her as "dignified Bessie," but now 
we know her as "Potts." Since her ar- 
rival in Due West she has spent many 
hours of hard and deep study, of which 
she seldom ever grows tired. Our depar- 
ture from her would be unpleasant with- 
out the relieving assurance that her path 
is destined to success. We know that 
whether she leads the quiet home life or 
business life that she will always cling to 
the highest ideals. Success must be hers, 
since she has the grace to win, and heart 
to hold.

"She is a ivinsome ivee thing 
She is a handsome nuee thing 
She is a bonny laee thing." 

Due West is fostering a typical south- 
ern girl in the person of Ruth Pratt. Some- 
times she is dreaming dreams in the south- 
ern twilight, at other times with the spirit 
of a Confederate soldier, she is waging war 
for woman's suffrage. Oftentimes with her 
attractive personality she is making merry 
her friends, especially those of the opposite 
sex; yet in spite of her friendship with the 
young men, she is cultivating the acquaint- 
ance of the old masters. If we know her 
only in classroom, we might predict for her 
the professorship of history in some college, 
yet with the eyes of an old sibyl y^e. see her 
presiding over a dinner party in her own 
little home.

of the class of 1920, and her loyalty to its 
principles, her zeal in maintaining its stan- 
dards, and her devotion to our Alma Mater 
have won our respect and love. Virginia's 
record in classwork has been one of the 
highest throughout her four years with us. 
As a Society member she is most active, and 
her rare ability in argumentation wins 
many debates for her side. In conversa- 
tion she is quite versatile and entertaining. 
She is an accomplished singer and a praise- 
worthy student; a true friend and a well- 
loved classmate.

"Type of the ivise luho soar but never roam, 
True to the kindred points of Heaven and 

"With eyes that drooped like summer 
flowers," four years ago "Lil" timidly made 
her entrance into' College life, like a shy 
doe that steps from the sheltering forest 
into the open. Her timidity kept her not 
from making friends, for who is it that 
does not love the shyest flowers best? Many 
a dark hour has she brightened and many 
a burden lightened by her bright smiles 
and cheery words. Her ideals are among 
the highest and by association with her one 
is taught to lift oneself higher and see 
things brighter than earthly darkness. She 
has worked steadily, played occasionally, 
and enjoyed life always. We know that 

success and happiness will be hers forever, for "In her face we see the map of honor, 

truth and lovaltv."

Grace does talk, but a good talker implies 
a good audience. Her opinions are good 
and are generally accepted. No better com- 
pliment can be paid Grace than to say that 
she is one of the best all-round members of 
the Senior class, as is shown by her splen- 
did record in the class-room, her work in 
the Literary Society, the Y. W. C. A., the 
Glee Club, and on the athletic field. The 
fact that she was made Editor-in-Chief of 
D. W. W. C.'s first annual proves her 
ability and our confidence in her.

Marguerite Willis Todd^ Mrs. 
Due West, S. C. 

"She is not made to be the admiration of 
everybody but the happiness of one." 

Marguerite decided that instead of a mu- 
sical degree, a matrimonial degree would 
be more to her taste, so this degree was con- 
ferred upon her during Christmas of her 
Senior year. We have never quite forgiven 
John for taking Marguerite away from us, 
yet we cannot blame him for we know that 
our loss was his gain. Altho Marguerite 
is the smallest member of the class, yet she 
can often accomplish more than others 
twice her size. She is known as "Pokey" 
among her best friends but this name does 
not suit her in the least, for she is always 
busy doing something, and what she does 
she does well. We congratulate Mr. Todd 
on his selection of a wife, and we all join 
in wishing Mr. and Mrs. John Todd a 
happy and successful life.

"The spring had come, the flowers in bloom 
and the birds sane out their lav." when this 
fair specimen of woman-hood graced the world 
by her presence and brightened the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. H. Z. Bovd. Possessing the 
great desire to drink deeply of natures cup, 
she came to Woman's College four years ago. 
During this time she has made a host of 
friends both old and "Young." She has been 
a wide awake member of the Societv of her 
choice. Being especially noted for her voice 
she has conseauentlv rendered much appreci- 
ated service to Amelia and the Y. W. C. A. 
Last year she received the B. Mus. degree, al- 
so the McBride voice medal. She has been an

Senior Class Histop? 

HE CLASS OF 1920 pauses on the mountain top of graduation to look 
back over the pathway that it has blazed up the hill side of college educa- 
tion. Naturally there are some regrets as we come to this day of retro- 
spection. There are sighs for opportunities missed, for bad records left be- 
hind, for demerits received ; but there is a feeling of satisfaction also as we 
think over the past days. This has been a happy and worth while period 
of our lives. Of the twenty-three who stand together today prior to making their 
impress on the world that lies beyond, sixteen have trod the four years together. Ruth 
Boggs, Rose Burns, Sudie Milford, Lila Bonner, Virginia Galloway, Grace Donnald, 
Ruth Pratt, Margarete Dallas, Lilla Templeton, Sara Patrick, Ivy Boyd, Elizabeth 
Tribble, Elizabeth Cathcart, Lillian Singleton and Virginia Reid started at the first 
mile post together. There were others with us in those early days, but as we climbed 
higher and higher many found the paths of education not to their liking. Some de- 
serted us to try the path of business life, some the school teachers sphere, and not a 
few left us for the primrose path of matrimony. But our depleted ranks have been 
filled time and again by others who have brought praise to our name. Grace Shef- 
field, Pearl Dale, Laura Hill, Bessie Potts, Mary Belle Hood, Wilmot Whitesides, 
Laura Jane Mullen and Martha Pressly have joined us as we drew nearer to the top 
of the hill. 

The Class of 1920 leaves a composite photograph impressed on the mind of the 
President and each member of the Faculty of the Woman's College. There will be 
times of course when our friends and instructors will think of the individual mem- 
bers of this class. More often, however, they will recall the photograph that the 
class as a whole has left behind. Let me hold one such picture before your eyes and 
point out to ou the deeds and achievements that have put certain marks of character 
on the face of our class. 

As we scrutinize this picture we see that there are lines in the face that indicate 
strong intellect. There have been few girls in the class of 1920 who have failed to 
take a strong and active interest in the Academic work. During our Freshman year 
in college our average record was good. Never can we forget our heroic struggles 
with English nor the pride with which we received the plauded "Well done" when 
we had finished our themes that completed our Freshman English course. Each suc- 
ceeding year has brought its tasks in our literary work and each task has been met 
and conquered. The Mathematics, French and Sciences have seemed at times insur- 
mountable obstacles, but all of those difficulties have been overcome. One of the 
crowning feats of our literary career was the editing, as Seniors, of the first annual 
from the Woman's College. Nearly all of us have contributed to this, our "brain 
child." Sometimes in the future, if present indications prove true, we may have a 
real writer from the Class of '20, for even now we have one, whose pen has aston- 
ished teacher and pupil. 

Page Forty-five 


Again we see evidences in the picture of our physical strength. It is largely 
basket ball practice that has put these markings there. During the year 1916-17 the 
Freshmen went out in large numbers to the basketball court. Excitement was high 
when, at the close of that Thanksgiving Day, after a battle with the Junior-Senior 
team and then with the Sophomores, the Freshmen held the loving cup. "Again in 
the fall of 1917 ours was the winning team. When 1918 came around the black 
and gold" still carried the day. Naturally the Seniors of '20 hoped to complete its 
basket ball career by taking the loving cup for the fourth and last year. But our team 
met its Waterloo on Thanksgiving Day of 1919 and the cup went to our very worthy 
opponents, the Junior Team. 

But what are the feats that have marked "artistic temperament" on our picture. 
First there is musical talent in our class — in fact we might call ourselves a "musical 
family." There are vocalists, pianists and at one time we even claimed a violinist 
among our number. No musicals have been given when we did not have some capable 
representatives from our class. Three of the present Senior class have taken musical 
degrees, two have received the McBride voice medal and two have had charge of the 
music of the Y. W. C. A. Then we have an artist in our class. She has taken an 
active part in this branch of work and one year she received a scholarship in art. Then 
the class may boast of no little dramatic ability. In the spring of 1918 we, Sopho- 
mores at that time, staged a play, "Abbu San of Old Japan," which was pronounced 
far and near a "splendid success." We used the proceeds of this performance to 
beautify the campus by the erection of the rose arbor which proudly holds the fort 
near the entrance of the campus. In the scenes from Shakespeare in the Castalian cele- 
bration and the Indian pageant of the Amelian celebration, many of our girls took 
part. During the Junior year we had a credible representation in the Patriot pro- 
gram which the Amelians presented, and the Tennyson pageants staged by the Cas- 
talians. Nor will the record be broken in our Senior year. The two societies are 
calling again this year for our girls to assist in the "dramatics." While we see no 
signs up to this time of a Sara Bernhardt among our classmates, we have no doubts 
that there will be some lesser lights from among our number. 

The last marked characteristic of our composite photograph is that it is a face 
which is concerned not only about material things but has a vision of something higher. 
The four officers of the Y. W. C. A. for the year 191 8-' 19 were members of the 
Class of '20. The same thing occurred this year. And we are proud to say that we 
have two student volunteers who go out from the Woman's College this year with us. 

The picture of our class that we leave with the Woman's College is one that 
will never die. Long after the exact events of our college career have faded into the 
past, the noble and good that we have learned within its walls will be living and 
growing in the lives of those whom we meet. 

Virginia Reid, '20.

Senior Class Poem 

Who says that our work is over 

When our College days are through, 

With our girlhood days behind us — 

The bright days and the blue ? 

Who says our tasks are finished, 

Before we yet have tested life? 

Can we bear the name of victors 

When we have not met the strife ? 

Today the gates will close behind us ; 

We stand where the brook and river meet. 

This is the burden of our song — 

We take life's cares and hardships, 

To live the pure and speak the true, 

And in the world to right the wrong. 

As the rose, clean and unspotted, 

With its whiteness unmarred by sin, 

Shall we keep our souls all pure 

God overhead. His love within. 

We shall strive to lift the darkness 

To make this earth more than just earth, 

And of the years of patient training 

We shall try to prove the worth. 

Unto you, our dear Alma Mater, 

We shall live forever true, 

And show to all the world of men 

That we have been with you. 

And from o'er flowing hearts we pray 

Once more to you — Caress us ! 

With low bowed heads today we stand 

Awaiting you to bless us.

Class Will 




Be Sure to Come to the Notion Counter, 

First Floor Lobby, Carnegie Hall, 

Woman's College. 
Small things, great things, odd things, 
precious things, numberless things, arti- 
cles once the possessions of the Senior 
Class — All at a bargain price. The no- 
tion counter will be open May 27, 28, 








(Special to the State) 

May 27, Due West, S. C. 
There was an exciting scene before 
the doors of Carnegie Hall at 4 P. M. 
Long lines of girls and teachers were 
packed closely against the door, pushing 
and jostling, trying to get to the front. 
At length the notion counter was ready. 
Miss Eliabeth Tribble was general man- 
ager. Miss Ruth Boggs was Cashier, 
making her last stand as holder of the 
money bag. Miss Wilmot Whitesides 
stood at the wrapping counter, seeing 
that each article was tested and wrapped 
in best wishes from the Senior Class. To 
tell how the crowd swooped down upon 
the notion counter and how each found 
the things that suited her or that she 
needed, would be a hard task for a re- 
porter with only two eyes, to describe. 

The first one that found a suitable 
article was Miss Abernathy. She 

grabbed the monacle and spectacles tied 
with yards of black ribbon which former- 
ly belonged to Miss Bessie Potts. She 
rushed to Cashier Boggs, but there found 
that she could not pay for them that day 
as each article was not to be paid for in 
greenbacks but in good will to the Senior 

Miss Sheffield seemed to be searching 
diligently for something important, but 
could not find it. Miss Tribble went to 
her aid. Miss Sheffield said that she 
was looking for another sister to edu- 
cate. There was no such article left, buf 
Miss Tribble showed her a little comet 
hanging by its tail. Miss Sheffield 
grabbed this and went off exceedingly 
happy. Miss Sheffield already had a 
large deposit at the Cashier's desk. 

The whole Junior Class seemed to be 
lugging a bulky package. Some one said 
that it was the Seniors' luck at basket 
ball in 1920, but it is not known for cer- 
tain. It was already paid for in good 
will from the Juniors, so Cashier Boggs 
merely nodded as they passed 

Miss Williard Knight was rejoiced 
over a purchase she had made. Her 
package was a pair of high heels which 
originally belonged to Miss Sarah Pat- 

There was an odd looking package 
upon the counter which seemed about to 
spill. Margaret McCord quietly asked 
what it was. She found that it was a 
package of Miss Grace Sheffield's left 
over words, which she had not had time 
to use. Miss McCord immediately had 
this wrapped up for her in best wishes 
from the Seniors. Miss Grace Cashion 
purchased Miss Mary Belle Hood's bun- 
dle of Cousins. Miss Janet Moore 
claimed Miss Lillian Singleton's position 
on the Blue Ridge Working Force. 

Paffe Forty-eiffht 

Miss Allie Rush bought Miss Grace 
Donnald's stinging sarcasm, as Miss 
Rush felt she needed this badlj^ 

The doors closed promptly and many 
had to lay their packages down and come 
back on the morrow. 

(Special to the State) 

Due West, S. C, May 28. 

The great notion sale of the Seniors 
is progressing exceedingly well. One ar- 
ticle seemed to be attracting the atten- 
tion of many who were clamoring for it. 
Miss Eunice McElvey already had it in 
her hands, for she found it was a flash- 
light which formerly belonged to Miss 
Lillian Clinkscales, the class sponsor. 
Miss McElvey desired to use it to keep 
her from kicking boxes down the stairs 
at night. 

Miss Dora Elizabeth Pressly inquired 
if any one had seen Miss Virginia Reid's 
long tall man anywhere. She soon found 
that that was not one of Miss Reid's 

Miss Margaret Robinson found the 
remains of Miss Rose Burns' "Soothing 
Syrup for Freshman" and immediately 
purchased it. 

Miss Katherine Pressly bought Miss 
Pearle Dale's fondness for "Pelicans." 
Miss Dale, needing no other Fee, made 
no charges. 

A package containing remnants of 
soirees, wickets, text books, Y. W. C. A. 
pamphlets, hard work, an old tennis 
racket, letters, and several remains of 
Erskine Society pins, all left over from 
a good time which formally belonged to 
Miss Lilla Templeton, was purchased by 
Miss Belle Dale. 

One package seemed to elude the grasp 
of many. Miss Analine McCrory final- 
ly captured it and found ij to be the 

swiftness of Miss Pearle Dale and Mar- 
garet Dallas. Miss Emmie Lou Ed- 
munds got at a bargain price the picture 
hats of Miss Ruth Pratt. 

Miss Lois Pressly eagerly grasped 
Miss Sudie Milford's week-end trips, for 
she was anxious to go home to see her 
mother in Oklahoma as often as possible. 

Miss Margaret Phillips selected Miss 
Virginia Galloway's ability to slip out 
of tight places. 

Miss Elizabeth Mann found the ques- 
tion box of Miss Laura Jane Mullen 
as her possession. Miss Essie DuPre' 
was hunting Miss Elizabeth Cathcart's 
baseball pitcher, but found he was still 
in pitch with Miss Cathcart. 

Miss Olanda McQueen decided to 
continue Miss Laura Hill's subscription 
to the Nashville Banner, thinking it 
might have several love stories in it. 

A group of Juniors seemed to be ex- 
amining a package very carefully. It 
was found to be "The Arrow" which 
had pierced the purse of the Senior Class. 
There was much putting of heads to- 
gether, many perplexed looks, intense 
whispers, thoughtful weighing of prob- 
lems. But, finally this countenance 
changed and with an expression of calm 
determination, they boldly came to the 
counter and made the purchase. 

At this time the doors again closed 
and the friends went to their homes hap- 
py over their purchases. 

May 29. 

The Great Senior Bargain Counter 
was closed today as all of the articles 
were sold out yesterday. The sale was 
one of the most successful events of the 
season and was of great benefit to all 
who made purchases.

Class Prophecy 

Near a gypsy's tent one autumn day, 
Some dignified Seniors happened to stray. 
To the eager query as to whom they might be 
Prompt came the answer, "We're from 'W. C " 

"Come hither, fair ones," said the gypsy bold, 
"Come, cross my palm with much bright gold; 
Deep in the heart of my crystal ball 
I'll see the future of each and all." 

"Shall we?" the Seniors in concert cried. 
"It wouldn't be dignified," Wilmot replied. 
"Let's throw oH our dignity just for today. 
And hear what the mystic has to say." 

Lila Bonner approached her with sparkling eyes. 
From the ball turned the gypsy, smiling and wise. 
"I behold you, now, in a fai-away land, 
Healing the sick with skillful hand." 

A sweet faced Senior next learned her Fate. 

"Good things," said the gypsy, "come to those who can wait. 

As a preacher's wife, you'll charm just the same, 

And your name, 'Miss Boggs," you'll no longer claim." 

"Votes for women ! Down with the men ! 
We'll never submit to the tyrants again ! 
Laura Jane Mullen, great Suffragette leader. 
Makes an effective soap box speaker." 

"Maiden, with downcast, violet eyes. 
In a spotless kitchen you're making pies!" 
This prophecy glowed with domestic cheer ; 
'Twas welcome to Lillian Singleton's ear. 

With a scornful look, Bessie Potts came near, 

And said, "For my future, have no fear." 

"You'll write a book. Lo ! the title appears. 

It is, 'Men— Why I Hate Them— The Blessed Old Dears!' " 

The Gypsy now let her eyes quietly stray 

To where stood Virginia Galloway. 

"As for you, my dear child," she said with a smile, 

"I see you and 'Rube' still riding in style." 

Paffe Fifty 

With Auburn cars, and ruby rings, 
And many, many, lovely things. 
Your David will supply you. Rose, 
(No sweeter in the garden grows.)" 

"A lovely voice floats out on the air ; 
The listening people forget all care. 
They love the songs, — it does them good 
To hear the name of Mary Belle Hood." 

"Two charming maidens with consummate art. 
Ensnare, by their acting, the public's heart; 
Pearle Dale, in pinafores, childish and meek, 
Martha Pressly, a goddess, in costume Greek." 

Miss Pratt and Miss Cathcart must now draw near. 

Approach ! Approach ! There's no cause for fear. 

In future years you'll win your fame, — 

You'll count all the stars, and give each a new name." 

Then Wilmot approached with indifferent tread. 
"The fields are 'White,' " the mystic said. 
"You are chosen, young lady, to 'Garner' in 
The sheaves of good from the fields of sin." 

"As the dignified dean of a Woman's College, 
Grace Sheffield will wisely employ her knowledge. 
As professor of Chemistry in the same place of learning 
Elizabeth Tribble is for 'higher' things yearning." 

"Within the depths of my crystal sphere. 
There appears a picture, bright and clear. 
Grace Donnald makes a splendid nurse. 
Her patients grow better instead of worse !" ' 

"In a far-away city, a sign I see, — 
'Aesthetic Dancing Taught Quite Free!' 
Ma'm'selle Sudie Milford, straight from 'Paree,' 
Will teach you the steps, and to say, 'Oui, Oui.' " 

"An aeroplane huge now sails into view. 
And the driver, maiden, appears to be — you!" 
Lilla Templeton uttered a cry of despair, 
"Anything rather than riding through air!" 

Page Fifty-one 

Next came Sarah Patrick with brow serene. 
"Your future, child, is plainly seen. 
The greatest mission of your happy life 
Is to make the right man a charming wife." 

Cried Virginia Reid, of the golden hair, 
"O, give me a fortune both true and fair." 
"A Ph.D. I see you'll be. 
And teach the girls of W. C." 

"As a book agent you will win your fame." 
This to our friend, Laura Hill by name. 
With that gentle voice and pleading look, 
You'll make folks buy 'most any kind of book." 

"From the Senior Class you will soon depart, 
I can pierce the secrets of your inmost heart." 
Marguerite heard this, now isn't it odd 
She has changed her name to "Mrs. John Todd"? 

Of all the fortunes within my ball. 
Yours, Margaret Dallas, is saddest of all. 
A prim old maid, thus Fate has decreed. 
And a 'Miss' in your epitaph, too, I read!" 

As a runner victorious, weary of chase. 

Slow sank the sun to his resting place. 

Said the seer, "One moment, ere you depart. 

Hear the words that come from the depths of my heart." 

"Behold, Class of '20, the heavens fair. 
And the glowing colors painted there! 
But the Artist Great did not deem it wise. 
To etch human lives on the aureate skies 

Life is the canvas, for each of you, one. 
Wield well the brush 'till the task is done ; 
That your picture, in many a tint and shade. 
May be rich with a beauty that never shall fade." 

Margaret Dallas. '20.

striving to learn the ways of the sea and to be fitted for the voyage on the 
Ocean of Life. 

Blown from the four corners of the earth our poor wind-tossed band 
of ships gathered in the fall of 1917 at D. W. W. C. and set sail, with the 
faculty and President as crew and pilot, for Freshman Harbor. Unaccustomed to the 
rules and regulations of a fleet, each ship was at first anxious to leave the band and 
return to the port from which it had sailed alone, but as time went on, the benefits 
and pleasures derived from traveling with the fleet became more evident and each ship 
was content to be a part of the whole. In this way, we sailed together, narrowly 
escaping many shipwrecks thru the rough Sea of Freshman Life and safely reached 
the harbor. 

After a short rest, in which each ship returned to its home port, the fleet again 
assembled and started on the voyage through Sophomore Bay. Nearly all the fleet 
was back in place and a few new ships joined the band. The journey here was made 
in more peaceful and easy-flowing waters because the fleet was more accustomed to 
laws. In friendly contests with other fleets our squadron many times won the day. 

And now we have reached Junior Harbor, on our way to Senior Port. In this, 
our third voyage together, our journey has been characterized by loyalty to each other 
and to our fellow fleets. We are looking forward eagerly to the last, the culminating 
voyage together — the voyage through the Strait of Senior Life. When the journey 
starts next year we hope our fleet will be intact and we extend a hearty welcome to 
any ships who desire to join us.

Sopnomore Class History 

N the fall of 1918 there came to D. W. W. C. about seventy-five representa- 
tives of four states, who wished to get all that could be obtained in the 
Freshman Class. We seemed a motley crew, all sizes and shapes, and were 
overpowered by the stern discipline of the Faculty and by the curious glances 
of those Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores. However, we soon overcame our 
timidity enough to enter the library without knocking and to feel quite at 
home while in there. 

Although our work was interrupted by the "Flu," we managed by hard work to 
cover the ground required of us. Our class made a good showing in athletics. We 
had three representatives on the college team last year. 

Having lived through nine long months we left in June, looking forward to the 
reopening of college when we would be all important Sophomores. Away from the 
rush and noise of college, far from books and teachers, we spent three short and happy 
months of pleasure with our home folks. 

With none of our former timidity and uncertainty, September, 1919, found us 
again assembled in the old halls. Although our numbers had decreased and we had 
lost some of our best members, we determined to make good. So adopting, "Let 
nothing discourage you, never give up," as our motto, we are striving to make W. C. 
proud of us; and we are looking forward anxiously to that day in June of 1922, when 
there will go out from this college not only the largest but one of the best classes in 
her history.

History of Class of 19^3 

EPTEMBER 16, 1919, when a bunch of bewildered Freshmen landed in 
the "Holy City," we, the Class of 1923, first began our journey up that 
hard and rocky road to knowledge. Since that time we have been engaged 
in that mighty struggle, realizing that the only way to success is by persever- 
ance and "burning the midnight oil." We, therefore, have diligently applied 
our fertile brains, which our green heads gracefully contain, to pursuing our 
journey up that narrow path which leads to a diploma everlasting. 

Although our soirees have been few and far between, and we have never had the 
pleasure of enjoying what the old girls call the "Heartfelt Old Time Soiree," Cupid 
has been faithfully on the job and many of our young and innocent hearts have been 
pierced by his arrows. 

The Y. W. C. A. has quite a majority of our class on her roll book, and we are 
doing our part as well as "Fresh" can do. 

The societies have meant much for our literary training, and we see in our class 
valuable material for debating and reading, and also much musical talent. 

Our Freshman Basket Ball Team is considered a splendid team by all the classes 
- — even by our sister class, the Juniors. 

"We have reached the foothills, and the mountains are beyond." We realize 
that the mountains are indeed beyond, but each Freshman is determined to do her best, 
and make D. W. W. C. proud of her Class of '23.

Woman's College of Due West 

T was in the year 1859 that a few men first conceived the idea of establishing 
a school where young women of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church 
might receive adequate training under decidedly Christian influence. For 
our Presbyterian forefathers, intellectual training and spiritual development 
went hand in hand. 

In the fall of 1859 during a session of Presbytery at Newberry, S. C, 
Revs. J. I. Bonner, R. C. Grier, J. C. Galloway pledged five hundred dollars each for 
this enterprise. Their example had its influence on others and in November of the 
same year at Due West it was decided that the school in Due West under the charge 
of Miss McQuerns be taken over and a "female college" established. This was ac- 
cordingly done. Since the three room building was not competent for the needs of 
the new school, a seven acre tract, where the college now stands, was purchased and 
a canvass for money instituted. The work was discouraging; money came in slowly. 
After a time, however, the corner stone of the brick building, the present Main Build- 
ing, was laid. 

In January, 1860, the first session of the College opened with the following fac- 
ulty: Rev. J. I. Bonner, President, Rev. J. C. Galloway, Miss McQuerens and Miss 
McBride. The course of study prescribed was a good one and adequate for the needs 
of the time. But the new College was lacking in equipment. There were only five 
recitation rooms, these unplastered ; no stairway to the second floor ; one second-hand 
piano; no library; no laboratory, and no dormitory for the students. Due honor and 
praise should be given the founders who, in spite of debt and discouragement, stood 
by and supported the new College. 

The first Commencement, occurring July 8, 1861, was held in the church; the 
first graduating class consisted of five young women. 

It was during Dr. Bonner's administration that the War of Secession which 
swept away so many of our Southern Colleges was fought. Because of the heavy debt 
which the Trustees in the impoverished state of the country found themselves unable 
to pay, it was necessary to change the form of ownership. In 1867 a joint stock com- 
pany was organized which took over the college, paid the indebtedness, and added 
some necessary equipment. Dr. Bonner's administration extended over a period of 
twenty-two years to 1881. This administration cannot be better characterized than 
by the words of another: "Dr. Bonner was preeminently the man for the hour and 
at last won out in face of all desperate odds and planted the college on firm grounds." 

After the death of Dr. Bonner, Professor J. P. Kennedy, who for a number of 
years had been Professor in Erskine College, was unanimously chosen President. He 
associated with himself Mrs. K. P. Kennedy and Mrs. L. M. Bonner, both of whom 
had been connected with the college prior to this. The old church was purchased for 
a dormitory, thus enabling the college to accommodate a greater number of boarding 
students. In 1887 when, on account of ill health, it became necessary for Professor 
Kennedy to give up the work, Mrs. L. M. Bonner was chosen President and served 
most successfully until 1895. For the four succeeding years Rev. C. E. Todd was 
President. Although handicapped by disease, Mr. Todd was a man of unbounded 
energy and aspiration and during his regime notable progress was made. In 1900 
Rev. James Boyce assumed control of the college. During this administration the 
curriculum of the institution was broadened and the standard raised. The Carnegie 
Dormitory erected in 1908 is a monument to his endeavor, but perhaps Dr. Boyce's 

Page Seventy-three 

most far-reaching work was his success in having the college transferred from the con- 
trol of the stock company to the Synod of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. 
The institution had been maintained largely by the church ; now it was to be a denom- 
inational school owned and controlled by the church. It was at the time of this trans- 
fer in 1904 that the name was changed from Due West Female College to Woman's 
College of Due West. 

Of Dr. and Mrs. Richard Lee Robinson, now President and Dean, respec- 
tively, of the college, it is not necessary to speak. All the Associate Reformed Pres- 
byterians, indeed many in other denominations, know of their work. With no en- 
dowment, little financial aid from the denomination, with the continued rise in prices 
of everything, they have labored cheerfully and indefatigably. New departments 
have been added and the standard raised to satisfy requirements of the Association of 
Southern Colleges. The burden of the administrative work has been theirs ; our ap- 
preciation and praise should also be theirs. 

In 1915 the much needed Alumnae Building was ready for use. This, a gift 
largely of the alumnae of the college, contains the auditorium, practice rooms, music 
studios and art studios. 

Quoting Dr. D. G. Phillips, in an address delivered September, 1910: "No 
arithmetic of earth, eternity alone can reveal the debt our church owes the Woman's 
College." Struggling for six years against poverty and poor equipment, she has held 
a place with other splendidly equipped colleges of our land. A list of the names of 
those connected with the Woman's College, both professors and students, is a list of 
which any institution might be proud. Among the professors there are: Dr. J. I. 
Bonner, Professor J. P. Kennedy, Dr. Jas. Boyce, Mrs. L. M. Bonner, Mrs. K. P. 
Kennedy, Miss McQuerens, Mrs. E. C. Stuart, Miss Mildred C. Watkins, Mrs. W. 
B. Lindsay, Mrs. Jennie E. Bonner and others not less dear to students of former days. 
Over one thousand graduates have gone out to every part of our country. A large 
number have found their work in Egypt, Mexico, Japan, India, China, and Korea. 
The Woman's College has a record of which she may be proud. It is for the students 
of today to see that her record is not sullied, her honor not stained.

In the fall of 1859, sixty years ago, at the home of Rev. Jonathan Gallo- 
way in Newberry County, S. C., three men dreamed a wonderful dream — the 
founding of a Christian College for girls. 

Nov. 1, 1859, the people of Due West awoke to find the dream had come 
true ; the Due West Female College was a reality with Dr. J. I. Bonner at its

College Life in 1870 

OLLEGE LIFE! How expressive! Who does not look back upon the 
years spent in College and regard them as the brightest pages in Memory's 
Book! Misspent? Yes, many of them, yet filled with joy and the joy of 

It is a life to be found in no other sphere — the warm friendships, the 
short lived bitter hatreds, the tears, the smiles, the good times, the differ- 
ences, the night feasts, the old campus, the many characteristics of the girls and the 
teachers, the discipline, the broken rules, all abide with the girl forever. 

Rules were many and rigid under Dr. Bonner's regime ; but a strict observance 
of them was not impossible. In short they meant strict obedience, strict honesty, and 
always a lady. A few girls were rewarded each year for keeping the rules. 

Our amusements? Friday night was nearly always a time of hilarity and socia- 
bility. A crowd would gather and play "steal partners," occasionally have a Virginia 
Reel or a Cotillion if any one knew how to "call out." We had plenty of good, 
wholesome fun. The sight of an elephant anywhere will instantly bring to mind the 
huge gray one which was accustomed to roam around the college on Friday nights. 
Its abode was one of the square rooms on the third floor. Its makeup was two girls 
from Huntersville, one now gone on beyond, the other the dignified wife of a dis- 
tinguished D.D., two solid gray bed comforts, and a long gray veil. It was indeed 
life-like : timid Ferrie Grier would faint at sight of it. Sometimes a huge turkey 
would follow in its wake, provoking more terrified screams, but that was part of the 
frolic. Once, answering the call to gather on the first floor, we stood mystified till 
the back door was opened, revealing to us Aunt Harriet and her bridegroom of inky 
blackness, both wearing snow white gloves! They were married by the President 
with the girls as witnesses. 

Uniforms? At the beginning of this decade the winter uniform was light blue 
(somewhat akin to Alice blue of today) with plain black hat.The first Sabbath in 

Fage Seventy-se'ven 

May we donned the summer uniform, pink delaine skirt and white spencer waist; 
straw hat trimmed with white ribbon and pink flowers, just a spray not bunches of 
them, and no lace. Woe be unto her who tried to wear the lace on her pretty new 
hat, sent from home. 

Our holidays were limited. At Christmas we had one or two days. One soiree, 
no calls or walks, then we wore the extra dress allowed ! Usually a grand Cantata 
as given by the school; no girl going home (but they were few) was allowed to have 
part in it. This generally held the girls. We had one other soiree at the Junior 
Exhibition in May or else the boys went home with us, then again Wednesday night 
of commencement. Of course "engagements" for these occasions were made long be- 
fore by "grapevine telegraph." "Girls will be girls." We generally had half holi- 
day on Thanksgiving, on March 8, Miss McQuerns' birthday we had extra dinner 
and half holiday. Then a picnic May 1. 

All in all we had a good time and I would not exchange my day for the present.

Tributes from Alumnae 

Those of us who saw her beginnings and knew the spirit and ideals of her foun- 
ders, have watched with pride and interest the growth and development of our Alma 

Mrs. Janie Kennedy Brice, Class of 1872. 

Alma Mater, Mother dear! 

What noble inspirations and aspirations you give your girls ! You ingraft those 
personal qualities that make woman a social favorite, namely: refinement, tact, intelli- 
gence, and sweetness of spirit. To which are added : energy, reliability, and a sense 
of responsibility in all her work. Coupled with these are: good health, assiduous 
literary study, religious, social, and ideal culture. 

Mrs. Sallie Miller Brice, Class of 1877. 

If one could fancy that there had never been the Woman's College of Due West 
to exert its wonderful influence, how much poorer would be the world today. 

Knowing that the Woman's College will live and grow, how much richer will 
be the world of tomorrow! 

Mrs. Gussie Hood Blake, Class of 1879. 

Far back from the street half hidden by the green of the trees stands a red brick 
building with four stately white columns guarding its entrance. 

Around this building cluster some of my most treasured memories. As a child I 
played in its shadow and as a girl I entered its walls as a student ; now as a woman 
I look back in memory on the men and women who taught there not only facts in 
literature and science, but ideals of noble womanhood. 

Mrs. Mary Miller Bigham, Class of 1883. 

Page Seventy-eight 

The best way to prove our appreciation of anything is to give it our most loyal 
support. We have no money to give as we would love to do, but we have given 
(God's best gift to parents) our daughters. My fourth is in college this year and 
if I had millions with which to educate her, I would not have her elsewhere. I'm 
sure the good influence received from the Woman's College means life to our church. 

Mrs. Janie Wideman Phillips, Class of 1887. 

"She is mine own, 

And I as rich in having such a jewel 

As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl, 

The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold." 

Mrs. Zula Brock Sharpe, Class of 1889. 

Recently, a girl from another college wrote, "There are no Sabbaths here, no 
spiritual atmosphere." Instantly, my thoughts took me back to dear old Due West, 
to its peaceful Sabbaths, to the wonderful influence of Mrs. Bonner, President, Miss 
Watkins and Miss Lillian McDavid, teachers, to the companionship of Macie Steven- 
son, Mattie Boyce, Fannie Wallace, Kate Neel and Mary Sullivan, all missionary 
products of those years, who left indelible impressions, then I asked myself the ques- 
tion: "Why should A. R. P. girls go anywhere else for an education?" Yes, why? 

Miss Ella Sterling, Class of 1891. 

I have always loved the Woman's College, I still love her and I always will love 
her. "Age cannot wither her nor custom stale her infinite variety." 

Mrs. Agnes Grier Long, Class of 1904. 

I think of the years spent in the Woman's College as among the best years of my 
life. As time goes by I look back upon them with increasingly pleasant memory. I 
prize those years not only for the knowledge gained, but the happy associations they 

Mrs. Elizabeth Faulkner Lummus. Class of 1907. 

Three cheers for the present Senior Class! We girls of 1914 are proud of you 
for having successfully carried through what we attempted and failed — A College 
Annual. We rejoice to see our college making progress as it ever grows dearer to us. 

Jean Kennedy, Class of 1914. 

Though our pearls of memories form but a meager strand, yet the most perfect 
and precious of all the gems are the sweet and ever lingering memories of thee — our 
Alma Mater. 

Virginia Galloway, Class of 1920.

Alma Mater 

Once again we come to thee, 
Bearing gifts of loyalty, 
Bowing at thy temple famed. 
Reverencing thy honored name, 
May the garnet and the gray, 
Wave forever and a day. 

Let no child who bears thy name 
Cause thy cheek to glow with shame. 
Thou must fair and fairer grow. 
As the swift years onward flow, 
Alma Mater, mother dear. 
Bless thy daughters gathered here. 

Born in faith and built in prayer, 
Thou hast been our father's care. 
Thou must never, never fail. 
Nor before a foeman quail, 
Valiant thou must ever be, 
Long live D. W. W. C.

The happy spring at last has come, 
The flow'rs were dormant lying, 
The bees have just begun to hum, 
The wind has ceas'd its sighing. 

No snowbirds flit from bough to bough 
O'er meadows brown and sere ; 
But happy robins calling now, 
"Say ! Spring at last is here." 

Beneath the skies so bright and blue 
The earth buds forth in splendor, 
And gently beck'ning calls to you — 
All nature grows more tender. 

No care the happy maidens know, 
They pluck the flow'rs of spring, 
While lightly skipping to and fro. 
They hear the song-birds sing. 

The farm boy turns the fertile soil 
And plants the golden grain. 
Green tendrils smile amid his toil 
While waiting sun and rain. 

For he is bright as flow'rs of May 
Ne'er in his path meets sorrow, 
'Tis he the whole world seeks today, 
The leader of tomorrow. 

The God of Nature reigns serene 
O'er lands of love and peace. 
No strife to mar the raptured scene 
Of happiness and ease.

A Quest of tne Pleiades 

F the lights had been brighter in the room, as they were not, for good reasons 
we shall presently learn, we could have seen a very familiar sight to most 
college girls. There was a burning chafing dish on the table, one girl was 
dicing bananas for salad, another making mayonnaise, and in fact all things 
were in preparation for a midnight feast. The scene was a happy though 
rather quiet one, for of course they must not arouse the sleeping duty teacher 
and get "caught" with the tragic result of restriction. The remainder of the seven, 
for there were only seven, who were not engaged in the preparation of the feast were 
sitting in and around the windows conversing with each other in subdued tones. 

The group presently turned its attention to the starry heavens. The Pleiades 
was the first constellation they noticed becaure their club had been named for it, since 
there were seven girls in the club and seven stars in the constellation. They followed 
up with Orion, and a tone of merriment filled the air as they gleefully reminded each 
other of the fanc\' they had woven around this constellation. Orion signified to them, 
any faculty member who might be on duty at a time of one of their festivities ; for did 
not Orion seem to be chasing the Pleiades in the heavens? And in truth he was if 
we are to accept the old legend of his being enamored of them and giving pursuit. 
Why was Orion not an appropriate name for any one who might try to chase the 
Pleiades in any of their frolics? Each one of these girls had grown passionately fond 
of watching these two constellations and applying its legends to their own club, and 

"Many a night from yonder ivied casement ere I went to rest, 
Did I look on great Orion, sloping slowly to the west. 
Many a night I saw the Pleiades, rising through the mellow shade. 
Glitter like a swarm of fire-flies tangled in a silver braid." 

The Pleiades had chosen their names from the names of the stars in their constel- 
lation. The one deemed the fairest was called Maia, for is this not true in the myth? 
The others had chosen their names from the remaining stars, as they pleased, except 
that the name Electra was given to the one who was the swiftest in getting out of 
sight when they heard Orion coming. 

At length the hot chocolate was ready and everything was served. The already 
dim candle was blown out since there was really no need for it at this time. The 
whole group now gathered around the window and talked of any subject that presented 
itself, — their lessons, lovers, or what not, and very often of Orion when there was the 
slightest noise in the corridor. 

"My chocolate isn't sweet enough," said Taygete, the third of the Pleiades. 

"Please don't light the candle to get any sugar to sweeten it," answered Alcyoni, 
"for Orion will surely see it." 

"I can get it for you without a light," chimed in Celaeno, and she accordingly 
rose and went towards the table to get it. Then all of a sudden : Clatter, clatter, 
clatter! Rattle, rattle, bang! Would it never stop rolling! She had knocked the 
lid off the table and made a horrible racket. 

"O, run for your lives! We are surely caught," cried Sterope and Merope. 

In less time than it takes to tell it, five of the Pleiades were out of the door, on 
their way home, and the other two were in bed — shoes, kimona and all — with the 

Paffe Eighty-three 

covers pulled over them, and ready to feign a snore should Orion come to see if they 
had caused the disturbance. Bright stars! 

Orion was reall}' aroused and rushed into the hall brandishing his sword (being 
interpreted, the flash light) in his hand and was in hot and close pursuit. 

The Pleiades broke the tradition of the heavens and fled in opposite directions. 
They chose wise courses with the exception of Electra. Fleet-footed Electra! The 
one who had been dubbed Electra had taken the wrong course for once! Orion caught 
a glimpse of her and pursued with all his might. His gleaming sword and Electra's 
wildly flying hair, the hair that makes the comet in the constellation, was truly a pic- 
ture of the Pleiades in the heavens. Down the hall and up the stairs the runner and 
the chaser went! The poor Pleiad must keep the tradition of never letting Orion 
catch her. When the Pleiades of old prayed for help in the mad chase, Jupiter helped 
them by turning them into pigeons and making them a constellation. Likewise, un- 
happy Electra wished that she were a pigeon, or anything except what she really was. 
At last she reached the door of her room and dashed in. She knew that Orion was 
still pursuing and now was her chance to play the mouse instead of the pigeon. She 
accordingly threw herself upon the floor and rolled under the bed as fast as she could. 

Electra was congratulating herself upon her escape and upon living true to the 
tradition of the Pleiades, when, — horror of all horrors! She heard Orion at the door! 
He entered and, bending over, flashed a light under the bed with his gleaming sword. 
The tragedy of it was that she was not a mouse that she might scamper away. 

Now that Orion had caught her Electra remembered that tradition also said that 
she had turned away to keep from seeing the destruction of Troy. She wondered if 
. the other Pleiades would turn pale at the sight, as the true Pleiades had at the down- 
fall of Troy, and if there was not an ill omen in the name of Pleiades. 

The names of Orion and the Pleiades seemed very fascinating in the flickering 
candle light at midnight. But in the broad daylight of the next day, called down 
before the faculty, the stern reality remained that Electra was only a college girl who 
in her reckless folly had been caught at a midnight feast. Jupiter had failed and had 
proven a false god to her as he had not been to the Pleiades of the heavens. Orion's 
dog, Sirius, who is seen trailing behind him in the heavens and who helps him in his 
chase, set up a loud bow-wow at the faculty meeting, and before it was over Electra 
was condemned to restriction for a whole month. 

The Pleiades had really blanched at the sight and did not venture on another 
midnight escapade for about two weeks. Electra was there and, to fulfill her part 
or the tradition of the Pleiades, was generally invisible, because she was hidden in the 
closet for fear of another chase with Orion. She explained that, as Electra ofl old 
had turned away to keep from seeing the destruction of Troy, she herself had turned 
away to keep from experiencing her own destruction. 

Since this quest the Pleiades have proven true to the tradition of Orion never 
catching them. They still fly before him in the heavens and he pursues. Likewise, 
the modern Pleiades fly before him in the corridors and he rides a vain quest.

A Perfect Da}) 

The sun peeps up — the day begins, 
The earth's cloth'd with a rosy hue; 
The birds their songs begin to trill, 
The sky's a beautiful pale blue. 

The day creeps on — the breeze is warm, 
A scent of roses fills the air ; 
A mocking bird trills low sweet notes 
To fill the world with something rare. 

The sun sinks low — a rosy glow 
Pervades the hills and mountains high ; 
The silent moon looks softly down, 
"Good-night, God's Blessing," breezes sigh. 

F. B., '23.

Our Brother's Keeper 

MERICA'S history has been one of challenges. "Conquer me!" cried the 
strange new land to both somber Puritan and gay Cavalier. "Subdue me!" 
invited the vast wilderness. "Chain me!" taunted each swift-flowing river 
as it rushed to the sea. "Beware, Paleface, the land is mine!" muttered the 
sullen and suspicious Indian. 

Then, just when the land was beginning to come into its own — just 
when the colonies were feeling the first faint stirrings of the national spirit, England, 
the mother country, stirred the young nation to bitter and purposeful revolt. The 
;oul of America, through the lips of Patrick Henry, sent this ultimatum ringing across 
the Atlantic: "Give me liberty or give me death!" 

And on down through the ensuing 3'ears, our land has ever met the challenge, 
"To arms, America!" fearlessly and courageously. She has ever been secure in the 
belief that victory is given to those who battle on the side of right. 

In the year 1914, the flower of American manhood set sail for foreign shores. 
Why? The challenge had been given, — America was answering. In 1918 the boys 
began to return, not in defeat, but as conquering heroes. The war was over. Our 
land had done her bit, as the many graves in Flander's field testify. But with the 
close of the Great War did our part in world-wide interests cease? Can America 
now fold her hands and enjoy her marvelous civilization and prosperity? No! Her 
greatest duty lies before her. 

At the close of the war our nation found herself occupying a unique position. 
As the greatest of the "Five Big Powers," she holds the place of counselor and guide 
to the remaining four: Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan. The period of recon- 
struction is a dangerous one.The future of the world is at stake. Shall the principles 
of "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" prevail, or shall humanity sink deeper into the 
quagmire of despair? America will be the principal determining factor. The great 
question before her is: "Am I my brothers' keeper?" To her belongs the power to 
answer as she desires. 

From Great Britain comes a clarion call for aid in establishing, first and fore- 
most, a just, lasting, and an all-embracing peace. The end of the war saw the mili- 
tarism and autocracies of central Europe destroyed beyond our greatest hopes. The 
whole continent was littered with the debris of disrupted empires. But it still re- 
mains to be seen whether the faith in which untold numbers of gallant youths died — ■ 
the faith in a war that was to redeem and elevate mankind — a war that was, possibly, 
to free the whole world from the terrors of devastation and bloodshed, had an actual 
foundation upon which to build or whether it was anything more than a beautiful 

The Peace Conference sounded the death knell of Prussian Militarism and it 
tried to make a new map of Europe, based upon the principles of nationality and 
democracy. The Conference also gave to the world the first working plan for a 
League of Nations. But when this much was done, the delegates turned their faces 
homeward, and gave their attention to domestic affairs. 

What of the infant democracies born during the travail of Europe? What of 
Russia? Is she safe for Democracy? What of the men who fought for the new 
world and of the hundreds of thousands who died to establish it? Are we keeping 
faith with them if we fail to honor the promises made them. These are some of the 
questions addressed to America by Great Britain. Says Charles McCurdy, a prom- 
inent Englishman: 

Page Eighty-six 

"It will be a tragedj' if the British people and the people of the United States 
stop thinking about this war and allow their attention to be switched onto domestic 
politics or industrial problems without first making a concerted effort to get a good 

One of the greatest difficulties to be met in the establisliing of this peace is that 
of dealing with those countries that have been subjected to Turkish misrule. By the 
Covenant of the League of Nations accepted by the Allied Conference on April 28, 
1919, the Allied Powers laid down, in no indefinite terms the method by which they 
proposed to deal with these peoples. 

Realizing that Armenia and the other downtrodden countries are in no condition 
at present to help themselves, these nations which were, by reason of their advanced 
positions in the political world, judged capable to aid these people, to act as manda- 
tories. The Allied nations of Europe cannot undertake the task alone. It is one 
that requires vast expenditures of money, time and man power. 

Great Britain and France will undertake the trusteeship of Syria and Messo- 
potamia. The future of Constantinople and Armenia are now of supreme importance. 
The condition of Armenia especially calls for aid. Her people have asked the United 
States for help. Will humanity be permitted to suffer longer? "Am I my brothers' 

A second of the Great Powers, Italy, presents her plea to America through a 
rather peculiar channel — that of Italian emigration to the United States. This phe- 
nomenon of emigration has long been a familiar one and has developed with such a 
regularity of character that it has come to be regarded as a normal manifestation of 
the economic life of the two countries. This movement has been momentarily dis- 
turbed by the Great War. But now the war is over. Italian immigrants have be- 
gun to come over in increasing numbers. Up until this time both Italy and the Unit- 
ed States have reserved the right of disciplining this movement in an independent way 
— Italy with her services upon emigration and America with hers upon immigration. 

Italy seems to think that the hour has arrived for studying this very important 
form of relations between the two countries. She hints at a treaty, similar to one 
she has recently signed with France concerning emigration. 

"Italy and America who have found themselves associated in the war," says Giu- 
seppe de Michelis, Italian Commissioner for Emigration, "are destined to an ever 
closer relationship. Let us take steps so as to give to this social reality the greatest 
possible weight in the system of the relations between our two governments. It is in 
the common interest of our two nations." America, what is the answer? 

The next message comes from the "Land of the Furthest East." Japan tells us 
that "Peace in the Far East has been, and is, the most urgent wish of all her thinking 
people." In 1914 when she entered the Great War with her Western Allies, she did 
so because of loyalty to her obligations and because an enemy (Germany) had a strong- 
hold in the East. In doing so she cast her lot with them to stand or fall. Japan 
joined with the victors in making peace, and will stand with them in maintaining this 
peace whenever it is menaced in violation of the terms of the treaty which she has 
signed and ratified. 

Japan sends a message of protest against the way in which that clause in the Peace 
Treaty concerning the Shantung award was received by the other nations. She pro- 
tests against the fact that the Japanese Government was said to be a treacherous con- 
spirator against the world at the moment she signed the treaty. She says that Japan, 
as one of the five main powers signatory, will keep the faith and abide by the treaty, 

Page Eighty-seven 

just as she has always kept the faith with other nations. So the challenge from Japan 
is : 

"We have stated the facts, America, concerning our position. Will you accept 
them as true and believe in our honesty and sincerity?" 

From the other side of the Atlantic there comes a last call to the American na- 
tion. This comes from France, as from friend to friend. France and America are 
the two countries in which, for the first time in modern history, democracy has reached 
its highest development under the form of a well organized and efficient republican 
government. They have fought together — they are bound by strong historical ties that 
have never been broken. During the past war the eonomic ties between the two coun- 
tries were much strengthened by the enormous amount of business transacted between 
them. Now that peace has been restored, commerce must be restored on a normal 

Bcause the equilibrium of trade has been broken by the war, the value of French 
money has declined in American markets and unless conditions are improved it will be 
necessary for France to buy from other countries. According to France, there is only 
one sound solution to the problem of overcoming the difficulty of exchange — that of 
extending credits to France. 

How will America respond to this? Will she answer as she has previously done: 
"Lafayette, we are here" ? 

Thus from the misty gray moors and fens of Great Britain ; from the sunny 
slopes and fragrant vineyards of Italy: from devastated France; from the "Land of 
the Cherry Blossoms" comes the call to duty. Each breeze that sweeps the ocean — 
each incoming tide brings the message. Just how America will answer remains to be 
seen. That she will answer, and, that led by a Higher Power, she will do the right, 
is the belief of every true patriot. 

Many are the dangers besetting her pathway. All the difficulties and the prob- 
lems cannot be settled in a day. No! Nor in many days. Our brothers' keeper? 
Yes, for such is America's place among the nations. And as the sun of peace ascends 
higher and ever higher, the prayer that rises from every heart and from every fireside 
may be expressed in those words so aptly and beautifully uttered by Longfellow: 

"Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State! 
Sail on, America, strong and great. 
Humanity with all its fears. 
With all its hopes of future years. 
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!"

Sing of loyalty and honor, 

And of lofty purpose true, 

Noblest v\-omanhood shall crown her 

Whose high aims pass in review. 

Our ideals we now will show you, 

Of our motto first take note. 

It is worthy, "Excellentia!" 

We to it our powers devote. 

In the valley of life's pathway, 

We will toil and gather strength 

For the steep ascent, that always 

Gives the hill-crest view at length. 

Nothing short of its attainment 

Satisfies the earnest soul, 

And the striving gives rare pa\ment 

Though not all may reacii the goal. 

Character, ideal and strong, 

This our standard long shall bear, 

Thoughts of worth we would make real, 

Things that time will not outwear. 

In our history we glory. 

And its leaves with pride we turn, 

For the oft-repeated story 

Makes our hearts within us burn. 

Poesy hath crowned with laurel 

Her whose name we proudly bear. 

And we strive to make immortal 

Loved "Amelia's" title fair. 

For an emblem long we pondered 

Rich insignia, everywhere, 

And from fair France's Honor Legion 

Gave, at length, the badge we wear. 

Courts of kings were sought for colors, 

Lore of knights and pages bold, 

These we love above all others, 

Royal purple slashed with gold. 

Fair Amelia's aims we honor. 

Her legacy in love bequeathed 

May we cherish through life's journey. 

And guard her fair name, laurel-wreathed. 

Miss Lenore Neville Long.

If you will follow me gently, 

With quiet steps and with care, 
I will lead through a vale of flowers 

(Rich blossoms of beauty rare). 
And then a dark cavern I'll show you 

In the side of a mountain drear, 
Which stands like a sentinel olden 

Guarding some treasure dear. 
And there I will show you a fountain 

Of sparkling water and free, 
Midst a wild profusion of flowers 

'Neath the arms of a huge oak tree. 
There, Friend, you may well look with wonder 

The fountain Castalia behold 
By a beautiful maiden 'tis guarded — 

Here are treasures many and old. 
You will find here the wisdom of ages; 

The fruit of well applied years, 
The sound of the silver drops tinkling 

'Tis mu^ic to earthworn ears. 
Castalia these treasures will show you. 

Aye these and myriads more. 
Of wonders perhaps you have heard of 

In books of fanciful lore. 
You'll find this to be a true story. 

If you delve in her treasure store, 
Castalia will not prove a miser 

She'll lavish her bounties galore. 
Now this is a secret I've told you 

Guard well from a treacherous foe. 
The beautiful spring was discovered 

Most twenty long years ago. 
Since that time Castalia has flourished. 

Her claims have widened their scope ; 
Her standard of womanhood noble 

Has given new life and hope. 
May the wisdom of ages ne'er fail her ; 

Her strength, be it ever the same. 
Doing well each task that's assign'd her. 

Ne'er fawning for glory or fame! N. H., '19.

College Life and Y. W. C. A. 

OLLEGE LIFE! What a wonderful life! The Young Woman's Christian 
Association sweetens and beautifies it all. One wakens in the morning with 
songs from the sweet singer of Israel floating through the halls. Soon many 
are gathered together for prayer and the day is begun with the "Sun of 
Righteousness." That upward morning look furnished by the Y. W. C. A. 
gives light for the day and music by which to march. 

Many are the college girl's comrades, her classmates, the poet, the mathematician, 
the historian, the scientist, the musician, the artist — but the Y. W. C. A. deepens her 
acquaintance with the true Comrade, the One who binds all her loves and friendships 
into noble and lasting comradeship. 

Life's callings and life plans are brought very close to the Woman's College girl. 
The Association is constantly holding up before her the joys and the rewards of a life 
of true service. Doors are opened wide and the white harvest fields, with their ripened 
grain are constantly beckoning to her. Splendid has been the response to these calls. 
Egypt, Korea, China, and Mexico have been made brighter and happier because of the 
service rendered. 

All hail the glad day when the Young Woman's Christian Association found en- 
trance into college halls ! Through her, many a Woman's College girl, once timid 
and faltering in speech, has become a polished leader, has learned how to pray with and 
for others. Her Master has become her companion and she can speak to Him as friend 
to friend. Our Y. W. C. A. has taught many how to live and how to fill nobly their 
place in the world. 

Mrs. R. L. Robinson.

Tribute From Dr. Green 

In the picture gallery of my mind hangs a photograph of the Morning Watchers 
in which the eye of faith sees a picture of rare beauty. They are matriculates in the 
college of God, sitting at the feet of the invisible but ever-present Teacher and Lord, 
loving and listening, — living, and learning to live, more abundantly. Like Mary of 
Bethany, they have chosen "the one thing needful, that good part, which shall not be 
taken away from them." In the atmosphere of the picture the believing beholder can 
detect the odor of precious ointment poured over the head of the Savior. Upon them 
descend and rest the Spirit of God and of Glory. 

Dr. J. B. Green.

'Out of Zion Cometh Perfection of Beauty*' 

T all times man has been striving for perfection, for beauty. History tells 
us of the struggles of man in the past to attain this perfection. The good 
that he saw in others he copied in order that he might be nearer the ideal 
of beauty of form, color and character. The Greeks, seeking perfection and 
beauty, erected magnificent temples for the abode of their gods. The re- 
ligious festivals consisted of the song and dance by gaily dressed maidens, 
carrying garlands of flowers — all of which was a striving after beauty to propitiate 
the ill will of their gods. The wise old philosopher, the monks in their cells, the 
prince on his throne, the little child reaching out its hand for a flower, all strove for 
perfection of beauty. 

There is the same desire of man today for beauty. The young girl blossoming 
in her youth wears her many colored ribbons and airy dresses that she may be beautiful. 
The home-keeper, busy about her household tasks, strives to make her home as near 
perfection as possible — a thing of beauty and a joy forever. The poets today, in order 
to please the human heart, sing of faith, hope and love — the beauteous things. But 
the world will never be satisfied until it takes into its heart "the perfection that cometh 
out of Zion." 

He was perfect in His life, beautiful in His works on earth. He was the "Rose 
of Sharon," and the "Lily of the Valley." Even His enemies could find no fault in 
Him. In His daily walks with His fellowmen. He was always the "Good Shepherd" 
keeping watch over His flock. His friends proclaimed Him King of Kings and Lord 
of Lords. He was the "Prince of Peace," the "Lamb of God that taketh away the 
sin of the world," the one perfect man — the Son of God. 

In His death and resurrection He attains the supreme height of beauty and per- 
fection. Thus He is able to satisfy the deep passions of the human heart for beauty. 
Only as we strive to be more like Him, to surrender our all to Him, are we able to 
attain the perfection of beauty that satisfies. Being made perfect. He became the 
author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him. He has promised us that 
"We shall be perfect, even as He is perfect." "We know that when He shall appear, 
we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." 

"He is our Hope, our Bright and Morning Star."

Athletics hold a very important place at W. C, and one which the girls enjoy to 
the utmost. Very few days pass w^hen the courts, both basketball and tennis, are not 
full, with a waiting list on the side lines. 

Our regular gymnasium classes, under the direction of Miss Hayes, have given 
each student an opportunity to develop mind and muscle in military dress, Swedish 
gymnastics, and outdoor games. 

Each class has its basketball team, and interclass games have afforded interest for 
the school and the public, and have shown us the value and necessity for "team-work." 
Our varsity expects to win many laurels in the games which we are to play this spring. 

Tennis, tho not stressed as much as basketball, is just as popular and in summer 
heat and winter cold our tennis devotees are on the courts. Our champions deserve 
much credit for their skill, endurance and tenacity of purpose. 

Not the least interesting and beneficial have been our hiking trips. Only those 
girls who can "walk and not grow weary" are eligible to this club. 

The Seniors are privileged to enjoy the Playground course, and many a day we 
see these quondam children playing "Little Miss Muffet" or "London Bridge" or 
tripping thru the measures of an Irish folk-dance, to the tune of their own laughter. 

Our students are hale and hearty, and we are all agreed that this is due in no 
small measure to our Athletic Department.

As students of the art of expression, by means of the spoken word, we are seeking 
to become not merely good readers, pleasing entertainers, and able interpreters of mod- 
ern thought, but to become as polished mirrors, truly reflecting God's Wisdom, Love, 
and Power.

"When mortals lamented that sunlight was silent, 
That language had limit, and passion had pall, 
That color lacked sweetness, and perfume would perish, 
The gods granted music, uniting them all." 

"Music was the first sound heard in the creation, when the morning stars sang 
together. It was the first sound heard at the birth of Christ, when the angels san^ 
together above the plains of Bethlehem. It is the universal language, which appeals 
to the universal heart of mankind." 

No life is well rounded or complete without a knowledge and love of music. So 
our endeavor is to implant in each student a love and appreciation of all that is best 
and most beautiful in the works of the great composers of both the past and the pres- 
ent. The time has long since passed when music was regarded merely as a pastime. 
It has taken its place as one of the fine arts — and none of them offers a broader field 
for culture. 

What is there in painting greater than Mozart's Requiem, Haydn's Creation or 
Gluck's operas? What is there in sculpture grander than Bach's Passion Music or 
Handel's Messiah? What is there in architecture that surpasses Beethoven's nine 
symphonies? What is there in Literature to equal Wagner's Music Dramas?

Book Review 

HE Editors of 2 he Arrow take great pleasure in advising its patrons in re- 
gard to all modern publications. We print below a list of new books which 
have achieved great fame in the literary world in recent months. It is our 
opinion that they will be very beneficial to you. 

"Successful Beating." — Go to midnight feasts and to your friends' 
rooms without a fast beating heart for fear of being caught. Bertha Ash- 
worth will tell you how in her new book. 

"How to be Slender." — Those of you who have superfluous flesh would greatly 
improve if you would reduce by Henrietta Guyn's new method. Follow the direc- 
tions in her latest book on the subject and you will obtain the desired results. 

"How to Play Tennis." — An indispensable book for those who would become 
proficient in the art of tennis playing. Its author, Margaret Dallas, is of great re- 
nown on the tennis court and her wide experience will mean sure success if once you 
read her book. 

"The Cut System Explained." — On account of the stupidity of the students and 
the complexity of the cut system there has grown up a great demand for such a book. 
Accordingly a committee from the Faculty has endeavored to make it clear in their ten 
volumes on this subject. If all the Freshmen will buy the entire work and study it 
carefully, it is earnestly hoped that by their Senior 3'ear they will understand it fairly 

"The Mouse Trap." — Maxa Bradley has prepared the book because of the suc- 
cess of her new methods of catching rats. In this method the only articles needed are 
a flashlight, mayonnaise bottle, zip-jug and a bowl of water. Read the book and save 
the expense of buying a trap.

T' t- 

Jean Reed (looking in a new mirror) — "Now isn't that pretty." 

Ruth Pratt — "I am thoroughly disgusted. I cannot get Dr. Robinson to listen 
to reason." 

Mary Less — "Whom did you get to do the talking?" 

Ruth Hayes (at the opening of school) — "Say, 'Freshie,' where are you from?" 
Miss Jameson — "I may look Fresh but they call me Faculty." 

In Psychology class Dr. Robinson was discussing the relation between olfactory 
and gustatory sensations. ! 

Allie Rush, very enthusiastically, "Oh! Dr. Robinson, if you would stop up your 
nose would you not get so hungry?" 

Myrtis Rush (boosting her- home state)- — "Some of the oldest cities in the world 
are located in Florida." 

Veola Johnson — "Why didn't you play that part Miss Hayes assigned you today? 
Because it called for an old maid's make-up?" 

Louise Barron — "No, I didn't mind that, but I was insulted. She said she se- 
lected me because I looked natural." 

Gladys Welborn lost her make-up box and couldn't go to the soiree. She hadn't 
the face to do it. 

Rose Burns — "I wonder why the Professor is so mad?" 

Virginia Galloway — "I gave her an answer which was so good that she could not 
improve upon it."

Ticket Agent — "When do you leave?" 

Miss Clinkscales— "Sabbath." 

Ticket Agent — "When do you leave?" 

Miss Clinkscales — "Sabbath Day!" 

Ticket Agent — "Well, when do you leave????" 

Miss Clinkscales — "Well, in plain terms, I leave Sunday." 

Miss Stoody (in cooking class) — "Miss Watson, how do you make the college 

Margaret — "You don't make it; it just accumulates." 

Why do Mattie Sue Witherspoon and Betty Morrah like "Bub-bles" so well? 

Virginia Reid (in Education) — "I could not teach primary work because I could 
not adapt my vocabulary to the children." 

Miss Clinkscales — "How much is a guinea worth?" 
Maxa Bradley — "About five dollars." 

Hortense Nash (thinking she was speaking of a guinea-pig) — "Oh, I have some 
at home I am going to sell if you can get that much for them." 

Miss Sheffield — "Belle, how did you draw that line?" 

Belle — "I drew it from the center of the circle to the point of attraction (con- 

Dr. Green was preaching a sermon on this subject: "^len love darkness rathei 
than light because their deeds are evil." He was giving several very striking exam- 
ples to illustrate this fact when someone overheard the following remark: 

Miss Kelso (whispering to Miss Boyd) — "Wonder why he doesn't illustrate by 
a midnight feast?" 

Marguerite Willis (Todd) — "I've confided the secret of our engagement to just 
three of my dearest friends, John." 
John — "Just three all told?" 
Marguerite — "Yes, they all told." 

Ruth Boggs was contemplating buying a phonograph and accordingly went to a 
store in Anderson to examine some. A young man who was very attentive waited on 
her. Upon seeing that she was interested in a certain one, he said: 

"Now the name of this phonograph is the Belvedere." 

Ruth answered with a haughty air and in icy tones: "And what is the price of 
the Belva?" 

Feme Bell — "Janette is surely a lucky girl. She gets a box of candy almost 
every day." 

Margaret Robinson- — -"How is that?" 

Page One Hundred Sixty-five 

Feme — "Every time she thanks 'him' for the last box she reminds 'him' that her 
name is 'Moore.' " 

Miss Clinkscales — "I want to see you make a B on English this next term." 
Grace Cashion — "So do I. Let's pull together." 

Ellen Hunnicutt (at the table) — "Elizabeth, for goodness sake pass the bread. 

You don't seem to care if no one else gets anv." 

A Friend (to Elizabeth) — "I suppose you feel yourself sat upon." 

Eliabeth Mann — "Pshaw, what do I care? Why the last part of her name is 


IVIiss Byrd — "Did Caesar's disposition change much during his life?" 
Elizabeth Johnson — "Well, he had more Gaul when he died than he did when 
he was born." 

Miss Sheffield (in Astronomy) — "Does any one wish to ask any question before 
the class is dismissed ?" 

Lilla Templeton — "Yes. How did they discover the names of the stars?" 

Pearl Dale (looking at a picture of the Colorado Canyon) — "I was always crazy 
to see this so I think I will go to Florida next winter." 

Isabel Choate — "We have to give an oral talk in English tomorrow." 

Martha Pressly ( returning from being called down to see the classification com- 
mittee) — "Those crazy teachers try to make me take everything. I guess they will 
want me to take the 'Flu' next." 

Marie Stroud — "Mary Less, you know I just hate to think about leaving this 
place in June. I have fallen so desperately in love." 

Mary Less — "Oh, that is a good joke for The Arrow." 
Marie Stroud — "It's no joke; it's the truth." 


The most unfortunate letter in the alphabet some say, is the letter E — because 
it is always out of luck, forever in distress (over Chemistry), never in a holiday, and 
in classes all the time. And, too, it is the beginning of English and the commence- 
ment of "exams." 

That's all true. Still it is never in a uniform hat, always in evening dress and 
always in something to eat. Without it there would be no life, no heaven, no "For- 
bidden," no wickets and no soirees. It is the center of every enjoyable "event" and 
is always in love. It is the beginning of excitement and the end of college life.
